Ja 3k Frost
From over the hills, with a breath of
f'atne,
From over the hills old Jack Frost came.
Cam so sofl'y that nobody knew,
Till the laud a beautiful picture rcw.
The elm leaves turned to a golden brown,
Each willow was decked with a gohkn
crown.
r
The thistle-down broke from its prison
cell,
And the nuts from their clinging burs as
well. -
The maples flowed on the green hill-side,
And color ran wild o er the country H ide.
As over the hills with a breath of flame,
Old Jack Frost, the ice-king, came.-

Tt is said that retrospect is not al-
1 all '. J t
ways pleasant, out that it is always
profitable in an intellectual sense, li
this be true, then it is well to look
back to an event in th history of this
nation that will always befringed with
black lines. The result of the recent
elections provokes me into recalling
and telling the story that reverie
brings up. Henry B Payne, the pres-
heiit Democratic benator irom Ohio,
i . i t
wno win next year give way tor an
other Democrat, as the result of the
recent political cyclone, was one of Hit
ni . i " l i i
Electoral Loin mission wuicii mane
Rutherfiird P. rl iv s Preside .t of the
United States, in speaking of that
worn air. ravue once sain: rive
hundred thousand men stood ready on
r l i 1 ci i i t iii i" ii
iHarcu , ioi 10 no oatt.e to tne
death, and the seating of M'. Hayes
saved us from an armed conflict of the
most deplorable character.' As Mr
Payne was the chairman of the com
tuittee that framed that Electoral
Commission bill, and was o:i the inside
of the events then agitating the whole
country, it is supposed that he knows
what he is talking about. His posj
tkm as a man of the highest character
makes his word accepted without ques
tion. How wonderfully, then, have
1 11 t 1 Ti
we traveled since those days, it is
only twelve years ago, and yet we are
more than a- generation, in results,
away frni that dangerous condition
the
the armed conflict be
tween the sections. After tire hrst
spasiu of anger which the seating of
Mr. Hayes aroused the country started
toward a new and a better life. That
event laid the cornerstone of a new
Democratic temple, which was so well
built that, eight years later on, it over
shad i wed the Republican barn, well
stacked with years of experience and
control. Agtin, the Democratic party
lias triumphed, and its powers for the
future are so well defined by it that I
am led to revive an old story, yet one
that should always be kept new.
These reflections bring up some very
appropri t thoughts of the conflict of
18TG and "77. They were recalled to
jjie to-day in a very forcible way.
Some malicious man, u not having the
fear of the Lord before his eys, but
being jyssessed by the devil,1' as the
lawyers say in their indictments, has
seen tit to preserve in enduring form
on a broad piece of parchment, the
signatures of the legislative, executive
and judicial officers of the government
in 187677. it is perhaps well that it
has been done, for it will tor all time
call attention to an event in the his
tory of the nation that will forever
stand to rebuke those who may in the
future, for a similar purpose, teel like
testing the temper of the people, and
of again stretching the powers of the
government almost to a breaking point
It seems as though the Republican
party began to decline from the mo
ment it lent itself to chicanery for the
purpose of keeping itselP at the head of
affairs by elevating a weak and unde
serving man to the highest office in the
gift of the people, to which he yvas
never elected. . Naturally, his Admin
istration sowed the seed of discord that
ripened with the election of Garfield
into an opened revolt that has never
yet been quelled, even with the accident
of Harrison's election.
What wonderful changes have taken

and presiding officer of the Te mte.
He declared Hayes elected. He was
and is a weak man, and in those trying
times it took the best and bravest of his
party to bolster him up to the final
duties of declaring the result as the
Electoral Commission had found it for
him. He was then a Senator from
Michigan, and reputed to be a wealthy
man. He failed in business soon after
and was beaten for re-election. After
ward he wtnt to Europe, and was prac
tically an outcast from the country oi
his birth, and upon whose history he
has made the impress of some qnestion-
tble acts, for several vears. He has
now returned to Grand Haven on Lake
Michigan, and is a country postmaster.
Talk aiout time setting all-things even!
Old Senator Christiancr was his col
league then, but he resigned in a close
bargain with President Haves, so a to
allow bluff and honesv Zach Chandler
to be elected to the Senate. Chris-
tiaucy got a mission to South America,
M e ptice ot his resignation, but he
did not remain there Ions. He re
turned to this country in serious
trouble with the young, girl he had
married in Washington. She was a
Treasury clerk and he a Senator. An
unfair match, and she got the worst of
it. She died after years of heartburn
ings and scandal. He still lives at
Lansing, Mich.
In those davs George E.Spencer and
G. Goldthwaite represented the State of
Alabama in the Senate. Spencer, after
his term expired, married an actress
known as May Nennez, and became a
nine speculate r in Nevada. Now he
is called a political tramp. He really
never had any residence in Alabama,
and when his I if- as a carpetbag Senator
i i i isr i .
ended ne armed west. Utointliwaite
was a curious old character, who looked
a good deal like the pictures of a coun
try parson you find in comic almanacs.
He wore a pair of gold-rimmed specta
cle always down on the tip end of his
nose, and was so absent-minded that he
would pay his carfare every time the
conductor ' passed him between his
boarding house and the Capital. They
used to have to tell him when the Sen
ate had adjourned. He is noyv on the
Golden Shore.
The State of Arkansas was ten
represented by Stephen VT. Dorsey and
Powell Clayton. Dorsev was in those
days a very prominent man in the Re
ptioncan puny, ana was a still more
prominent one in the 14 moral cam
paign," when General Garfield was
elected President. Dorsey has a ranch
i m r
now down in :ew Mexico, having es
caped the clutches of the law bv- an
accident, but spends most of his tune
in New York as a " promoter." Pow
ell Clayton is still browsing around in
politics, but has no place in the high
hfetfif the Republic. Five vears ago a
negro beat him for Chairman of the
National Convention. But he makes
money out of Eureka Springs, in his
State, and he still has some influence
there.
Newton Booth and A. A. Sargent
were then in the Senate from Califor
nia. They were simply two pliant
Republicans. Sargent was a much
stronger man than Booth, although the
latter had a good deal the most polish.
Booth has gone back to San Francisco,
and Sargent after having been Minis
ter to Berlin, was two years ago bea'en
for re-election to the Senate by Leland
Stanford.
Jerome B. Chaff e and Henry S.
Teller then represented Colorado.
Chaffee, who was a power in party
management for several vears, is dead.
Teller was Secretary of" the Interior
under Arthur, and is back in the Sen
ate. Connecticut had two Democratic
Senators in those days W. W. Eaton
and W. H. Barnum. Two Republi
cans now sit in their places. Eaton
has been in the lower House since
then, but is now in private life, living
hat Hartford. . Barnum remained a
great figure in his party as the head of
the National Democratic Committee,
but died soon after Cleveland was
beaten.
Delaware had Bayard and Saulsbury
in the Senate then. Mr. Bayard hsvs
been Governor of the State. The first
is dead and the latter looking for new
honors. J. E. McDonald and O. P.
Morton represented Indiana, and alout
equally divided the honors in intel
lectual
power. The latter flied some
weeks ago, but McDonald still lives in
Indianapolis.
Allison and Wright were from Iowa.
Wright quit politics in disgust at the
end of his term, because he preferred
the law; but Allison is still there.
''James M. Harvey, a dull, ordinary
man, with lngallsrwas there from. Kan
sas. Harvey gave way to an ordinary
Plumb, who got rich in railroad specu
lations. He is now there, and so is
In 'alls.
Who will not rememb -r that curious
old character, T. C. McCreery, of Ken
tucky. He was the laziest, yet one of
the most brilliant men in the Senate.
He never opened his mouth except to
vote, only when a Senator died, or there
was some unusual occurrence to arouse
him from indifference; then he always
spoke with power, and in the choicest
English. He had for a colleague J.
W. Stevenson, now dead. There is a
vast difference between these two men
of the past and Beck and Bluckburn.
Kentucky s present representatives in
the Senate.
In the days of which I am writing.
Louisiana was represented alone by J.
R. West. That State had not been
reconstructed then, and there was a
very decided quarrel going on over the
vacant Senatonship, and the status of
the State generally. It yvas perlutps
the worst, of all the examples of the
Carpetbag era. West was put out at
the end of his term, and was made a
Commissioner of the District of Colum
bia, and still lives in Washington.
The State of Maine, perhaps, shows
the most wonderful changes of them
all. Hannibal Hamlin and James G.
Blaine were then its Senators, while
Hale and Frye, the present Senators,
were in the lower House. Old Mr.
Hamlin has retired from politics, and
still lives up in Bangor, on the Penob
scot River, the silent observer of cur
rent events. Blaine still has his hand
on the trigger.
Maryland had W. P. Whyte and
George R. Dennis for Senators during
the Hayes contest. Whvte was beaten
for re-election by A. P. Gorman, who
has figured so prominently for the
Democrats every campaign since.
Whyte has since been Mayor of Balti
more, and row lives there quietly prac
ticing law. Dennis, who was there
with him, is des.d.
George S. Boutwell and Dawes rep
resented Massachusetts in those days.
The latter holds on, while Boutwell is
tryiug to make a living practicing law
in the Departments at Washington.
William Windom, of Minnessota,
who was a most creditable Senator, be
came Garfield's Secretary of the Treas
ury, and is there again with Harrison.
He was frozen out politics in his own
State by Sabin, the lumber m in. In
1870 Mr. J. R. McMillan yvas his col
league. He quit-public life in 1887.
F. M. Cockrell and Lewis B. Bogy,
both Democrats, then spoke for Mis
souri. Bogy was a curious character.
Tie was from one of the old French
families that settled St. Louis, and is
now dead, while the breezy George
Vest sits in his place. General Cock
rell still holds on.
The wonderful changes that have
taken place in the Senate within the
past twelve years can be seen from the
fact that in the days when a President
was elected by a commission, B. K.
Bruce and J. L. Alcorn represented
Mississippi. They were both Republi
cans, and Bruce the same colored man
that was Register of the Treasury
tinder Arthur. Revels, of Mississippi,
was the first negro who sat in the Sen
ate, and Bruce was the soeend. Both
of them were exceedingly creditable
representatives of their race. Alcorn
was a man of means and fair ability.
He is noyv a planter in the State he
then represented i i the Senate.
Nebraska had A. S. Paddock and P.
W. Hitchcock, both Republicans. Both
were beaten for re-election, but Paddock
succeeded by a Republican, and now
lives'at bis honie in Utica enjoying his
declining days in pence ajxi quiet. M.
W. R insom and A S. Merrimnn, both
Democrats, represen ted North Carolina.
Merrimon give place to Governor
Vance. nd General Ransom is still
there. -A. G. Thurman and John
Sherman represen Jed Ohio until Sher
man was c died iuto Hayes' Cabinet.
After v -.Hon changes Sherman is back
in the i nate again, while Thurman,
sympathy and tenderness told her that
he was sorry, but the State could do
nothing for her, but that the would
have to look out for herself as the best
she could. That the State mid not
aid her girls in preparing themselves
for the battle in life, that she proposed
to give heprbajB the best training pos
sible for the different avocations but
could do nothing t aid her girls in
obtainmg instruction in the industrial
arts and sciences. He told her, how
ever, in a sort of apologetic tone thai
if she could manage to get an educa
tion herself and then wanted to be
come a teacher she might possibly get -a
year's scholarship in the Winthrep
Training School.
A few years afterwards this young
man seeks a position in the industrial
pursuits or wishes to establish himself
in a chosen profession and be goes
armed and equipped with the State's
great professors. The young woman
is forced to make her own living and
seeks from place to place without sue- .
cess. All the industrial avenues of life
are closed to her, for she has not been
trained and equipped. Everywhere she
seeks employment but is forced away by
the .young man the State has educated
and trained. In dispair she goes away;
the bright sun of life sets almost be
fore it has arisen. Her brain is on
fire; she reels and falls and those who
come to pick her up pity her. The
State dignity passes along and ays
"poor girl," never once stopping to
think that the frail creature has been
literally killed up by the- State's iu j us-
tice. Sumpter Advance.
This not only .apply s to South Caro
lina, but its truth conies down upon
this State like an avalanch, crush

What a change in Pennsylvania's
representation iu the Senate since those
days! Theu,Simon Cameron was t here,
as tenacious of his party's success as
ever; while William A. Wallace was as
ardent and unvarying in his support of
the Democracy. Cameron got tired of
politics during the dreary irtid monoto
nous Hayes Administration, resigned,
and put his son Don in his nlace.
When Wallace's term expired, by a
kick in the party which Mr. Blaine
counseled, John J. Mitchell got in, but
did not fill Mr. Wallace's place. He
gave place to Quay. Poor old General
Burnside and H. B. Antony, who were
there from Rhode Island, are both dead.
J. "J. Patterson, who tried to steal the

TECHNICAL EDCCATION.
In thinking of what the State of
South Carolina is doing for her boys
while she is leaving her gir s to tight
life's battles alone and unaided a sort of
vision, as it were, came across our mind
and it was such a sad one that we can
not refrain from telling it.
We imagined that we saw a young
man and a young woman, both without
means, approach the State House and
knock at its portal. They were met at
the threshold by a great dignitary,
clothed iu the purple robes of State,
who asked them their mission. Sadly
they both told him that they were with
out education and without the means
of obtaining it; the young man was
strong and robust while the girl was
delicate, The great Sstate dignitaiy
grasped the young man warmly by the
hand and p.iuting him to the grand
University toldr him to enter there
through its wide open doors and be ed
ucated and trained and fitted for his
life work, or if he preferred he could go
to the citadel in Charleston and be
educated there all at the State's ex
pense.
While listening to all this the eyes
of the fair young girl sparkled with
hope and expectancy, but alas for bu
rn m hopes. "The great State digaitan
turned to her, and iu tones of affected
in its favor. "
To our Salisbury people this matter
should be of supreme interest. We
h ive the climate, a central, healthy lo-""'
cation, cheap living and a largo agr
cultural and manufacturing country
adjacent. Our people should think this
matter over, and if State aid through
the legislature cannot be obtained, then
let the municipality take hold and be
gin in our graded schools. Raleigh
has sent the Superintendent of ber
graded schools to various educational
centres for the purpose of getting the
best information on the subjects,
manual training in common chools.
It is quite probable that Raleigh will
become the pioneer in this work, but
there is no good reason why Salisbury
should not follow suit in to good a
Cause.
What do the teachers in our graded
schools think of the subjeeH' Of-
course, we mean as applied to male and
female pupil, in the common schools
of the towns.
The idea of having an uhT slipper
especially made to order to thru
nftef a bride appear to be a New York
fatiev.
